Puppets (Percy Jackson AU)
[completed] Piper McLean is the school's most popular badass. Until, of course, Thalia Grace comes along. When the two start a competition to see who's the best, more and more students get involved until it's a five way war between the coolest girls in school. Of course, it complicates things when Piper falls for Thalia's little brother Jasonâ€¦ ~ Rachel Elizabeth Dare strives for popularity. As a social outcast, she decides that the only way she can be popular is to take down the girls in the competition she isn't even part of. But when it comes to taking down Annabeth Chase, Rachel can't. Rachel's longtime crush, Percy Jackson, is dating Annabethâ€” and if Annabeth goes down, Percy goes down too. ~ Hazel Levesque is jealous. All she wants is a family, and the hot-shot new girl of a half sister is making that hard. When Bianca Di Angelo ditches Nico, her brother, all Hazel wants is to take care of him. So when Rachel decides to recruit her, Hazel can't find any reason to say noâ€” but it would hurt her relationship with Frank Zhang. ~ Reyna Avila Ramirez Arellano is living the life. She's got it allâ€” being in a dorm with her best friends, A+'s in all her classes and having the biggest shot at winning the competition. But when Piper McLean steals her longtime crush Jason Grace away, Reyna decides it's time to play dirtyâ€” but then she discovers what Rachel is up to. It's either stopping Rachel or winning the competition of her dreams. ***** She's the one behind the scenes. She orchestrated the whole thingâ€” Piper and Thalia's war, Rachel's hatred, Hazel's jealousy, Bianca's decisionsâ€” everything. Although they don't know it, she is the winner of the whole thing already. There's no way they could ever figure out who she is until she reveals herself. She calls herself L, and she is the controller. She is the master, and those students? Piper, Thalia, Jason, Rachel, Annabeth, Percy, all them? They are her puppets.
